The historic Old State House opened in 1833, serving as Arkansas' first state capitol building until 1911. This Greek Revival-style structure may be most recognized as the backdrop for Bill Clinton's bids for the Presidency in 1992 and 1996. Today, the building houses a museum of Arkansas history. Permanent exhibits include: Pillars of Power, exploring the history of the Old State House; Arkansas' First Families, featuring 30 Arkansas First Ladies' gowns; Grandmother's Cottage, a hands-on children's exhibit; the Arkansas Wilderness gallery and the 1836 and 1885 House of Representatives chambers.

Guided tours are available seven days a week. Reservations are required for group tours. The Old State House is a museum of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is designated a National Historic Landmark.
